Most people's view of silent film music is of a pianist playing old warhorse scores while watching the flickering screen. This highly innovative book shows that there was much more to silent films and that often it was planned from the start as an integral part of the film. The author also convincingly argues that film scores are a major and vibrant part of twentieth century music.

Journal of Film Music The book is well worth it, considering the sheer amount of information it contains. The writing itself is clear and direct... Musically-savvy readers will probably be happy to see a scholarly film music book with not only substantial analytical discussions but also musical examples in abundance. Anderson is especially interested in, and adept at, providng information of practical use to musicians and researchers in tracking down material. ... It is one of the most
substantial studies of silent film music available, and it constitutes both a useful reference work and a solid inquiry in a field only just beginning to open up to historians.
